The Social Worker supports our assisted living residents and their families with personal, social and environmental difficulties to ensure quality residential experience. The Social Worker provides counseling regarding adjustments to new living environment, loss of home, etc. and ongoing psycho-social issues including crisis intervention as needed. The Social Worker contributes to the multi-disciplinary establishment of the resident service plan and participates in interdisciplinary meetings. The Social Worker also assists with discharge planning for residents requiring a different level of care either within or outside the Senior Health Center, including requests for functional assessments and guidance with MaineCare applications.
